A. lange & Söhne stellar timepieces remain the quintessence of technical achievement. Barring a few limited edition pieces, each A. lange & Söhne watch runs on large mechanical movement that’s developed and assembled in-house. The cases are frequently made of platinum or varying shades of gold while the faces retain a highly Teutonic aesthetic. Meanwhile, entries like the lange 1 redefine the chronograph to absolutely brilliant effect. A. lange & Söhne stands tall as a pillar of German craft and engineering with a price tag to show for it.
